Every October in Southwest Louisiana, attractions and events get into the ‘Spirit’ of Halloween! This year is no different, and there is even an additional attraction that is sure to please

Lake Charles now plays host to two premier haunted attractions, the USS Orleck and The Lost Hollows. This year the USS Orleck Naval Museum which traditionally houses laser tag has been transformed into the BLUDD VESSEL. One month a year they open up the bowels of the ship to release the horrors trapped within. This year an experiment has gone horribly wrong and for those who climb aboard, sheer terror waits!

The Lost Hollows represents a new face on the Halloween scene. The Lost Hollows features two trails, the Spooky Timbers and the Deadly Pines that you can experience every weekend in October. A firsthand experience of these trails lets me assure you that this first year attraction will not disappoint. Without giving to much info away, the Spooky Timbers offers a fun, family-friendly trail for children of all ages that can be revisited throughout the night. For a more heart pounding experience, Deadly Pines winds its way through the woods and into your darkest fears. For more information on prices and schedule visit http://www.thelosthollows.com/

In addition to these two attractions in the area, there are additional events such as Halloween Costume Parties and Contests, Trunk or Treats, Pumpkin Patches, and Zombie Walk just to name a few. For a list of events visit http://www.visitlakecharles.org/boo/
